LGBTQ+ employees experience persistent discrimination and inequity in the workplace. They are continually denied employment opportunities, equal pay and sufficient access to healthcare based solely on their gender expression or perceived sexual orientation.
According to the UCLA William's Institute, 45% of employees report hearing LGBTQ+ discriminatory remarks in the workplace. This mistreatment of underrepresented people is a detriment that affects employee mental health, team morale and organizational productivity.
What role will you and your organization play? LGBTQ+ discrimination may place your organization in the crosshairs of legal liability and costly lawsuits. In 2021 alone, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) secured more than $484 million for victims of discrimination.
